Bipolar Disorder (Children and Adolescents)
"Curing" or Treating Bipolar Disorder
Is there a cure for bipolar disorder?
Thank you for your excellent question. At this current time, bipolar disorder cannot be cured. However, like diabetes, it can be effectively managed with the right combination of medications and psychotherapy. I hope this answer is helpful.
Take care and best wishes.
